Subject[PATCH] lib/string_helpers.c: fix infinite loop in string_get_size()
Date
string_get_size(1, 512, 0, ..., ...) call results in an infinite loop. The
problem is that if size == 0 when we start calculating sf_cap this loop
will never end.

The caller causing the issue is sd_read_capacity(), the problem was noticed
on Hyper-V.
